Weekend Watch: Author Jamie Parsley
The word “pastoral” applies to Jamie Parsley both in his calling as an Episcopal pastor and in his craft, writing verse about this region. The associate poet laureate of North Dakota’s newest collection of poems, his 11th, “Crow,” follows 2010’s “Fargo, 1957: An Elegy,” which offered scenes surrounding Fargo’s devastating 1957 tornado. Parsley celebrates the new book with a reading at 7 tonight at Zandbroz Variety, 420 Broadway. (701) 239-4729.
